First Action Bureau Returns With New Novel Coming Soon!

First Action Bureau returns to active service in a brand new novel!

First Action Bureau began as a full-cast spy-fi audio drama in 2020, produced by Anderson Entertainment with an all-star cast, including Genevieve Gaunt, Sacha Dhawan, Paterson Joseph, Nicola Walker, Wayne Forrester and Richard James. The 10 x 10-minute episode series was created and written by Jamie Anderson and Nicholas Briggs.

The First Action Bureau is an anti-criminal intelligence service which exists in the near-utopian future of 2068. The organisation protects the Earth by utilising ‘big data’ and artificial intelligence to predict criminal activity before it even occurs. However, top F.A.B. agent Nero Jones (played by Genevieve Gaunt) slips into a bizarre world of deadly conspiracies surrounding herself and the organisation. In the world of First Action Bureau, nothing is real!

Now the story continues with Richard James’ forthcoming novel; First Action Bureau: Damaged Goods. In this brand new adventure, Nero Jones finds herself drawn into even further mind-bending deceit as she’s thrown into more exciting spy-fi missions under the guidance of the mysterious Nathan Drake. As she learns more about the Bureau, she’s haunted by half-forgotten memories that lead her to question everything she knows. Just what is real and what is fake? As she delves deeper into the Bureau’s history, she comes to a startling conclusion; nothing is true!

First Action Bureau: Damaged Goods will be released as a novel, an e-book and a digital audiobook and will be available to pre-order next Friday (April 26th) from the Official Gerry Anderson store.

First Action Bureau is an exciting original production from Anderson Entertainment, taking inspiration from the worlds of Gerry Anderson, and brings the imaginative, futuristic spirit of adventure from Gerry’s works straight into the 21st century.

You can listen to First Action Bureau entirely for free via the series’ own website, whilst the physical CD release remains available from the Official Gerry Anderson store. Brush up on this futuristic crime-predicting spy-fi adventure with our recap video below!
